I am friends with a mum from my sons kindergarten (fyos). She asked me two weeks ago if my son knows all the sight words from term 1 and this terms sight words and 100 spelling words for this term. I said yes to her two weeks ago. Today she says her son only knows 20 words and cant remember other words and forgets all the times etc. I said to her talk to his teacher and all kids are different. She said she talked to her sons teacher and teacher said he is fine. She says why is your son knowing all the words and my son cant? I thought it was a stupid questions but didnt know how to answer it but said every kid is different and you need to talk to teacher if you want to know about your son.
Far out she spoke aloud and i felt embarassed.
I am worried that she will ask now what reading level is my son which is level 14 and i know her son is on level 1.
She is going to ask me tomorrow for sure and other days and i just want to avoid her. She was asking how do i teach and i said i dont really know cause he learns it in class. He just learns things by himself. No other mothers talk about it but her and its so annoying. How do i get her to stop talking about it?
